Deepwoods Software is pleased to announce the release of version 2.1.23 of the Model Railroad System. This package includes a collection of libraries and programs designed to help the modeler with many of the
more tedious aspects of his or her hobby. Included are libraries for communication with Chubb and Lenz XPressNet networks, a user-mode driver for the Rail Driver control console, a library to parse XTrkCAD layout files, as well as utilities for computing dropping resistors, camera view areas, creating railroad time tables, and a switch-list
based freight car forwarder system. There are several updates in this release:
- Converted all internal documentation (developer docs) to use doxygen. Doc++ and Tcl2Tex are no longer used.
- Man pages are now generated from the sources, both for developer docs (man3) and user docs (man1 and man8). This will insure that the man pages will be in sync with the program code.
- Added desktop/start menu support files (.desktop and .png icons). The MS-Windows installer adds a sub-menu to the Start menu and puts links to all of the programs there. This should make things easier for the point-and-click crowd.
- All of the C++ library code is in C++ namespaces.
